54 Below will present a one night only showcase presentation of Party Monster The Musical – the electronic dance music (EDM) musical based on James St. James' memoir "Party Monster" – Aug. 27 at 9:30 PM.
The musical has book and lyrics by Matthew Neff and a score by Brian Morey; it will be directed by Neff.
According to press notes, the story, "chronicles St. James’ life as a Manhattan celebutante and club kid. Blurring the lines between a traditional musical and a rock concert, the show examines two close friends, a group of followers and the consequences of self-indulgence."
The concert will feature performances by Joey Calveri (Rock of Ages), Julius Thomas III (Motown), Tracy McDowell (Motown), Laura Beth Wells (Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark), Injoy Fountain (Stoopkids), Marty Thomas (Xanadu), Tim Young (Next To Normal), Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), Russell Fischer (Jersey Boys), John Michael Dias (Jersey Boys), Talia Thiesfield ("The Following"), Ryah Nixon (Beaches at Signature Theatre), Marissa Rosen (My Big Gay Italian Wedding), Kyle Kleiboeker, Alan Shaw, Corey Desjardins, Noah Zachary, Brad Greer, Elizabeth Urbanczyk, Tina Jensen, Eddie Cooper ("Banshee"), Nathaly Lopez, Adriene Couvillion and Patrick Elliott.
